Section 1: Welcome to Becoming an Onsite Coach and Changing People's Lives!

Founder & CEO of WLF Medical, Melanie Wildman explains what it was like to have surgery without the support and that studies have shown increases overall weight loss by over 197% over 2 years and reduces relapse and weight regain by over 56% over 5 years.

As a bariatric patient who thought she did her research, only to discover her surgeon did not have the qualifications he claimed, Melanie suffered from complications like infections, a stricture and persistent nausea for months.

Safety and Support is the mission and passion of WLF, and as an Onsite Coach, you will be a critical part of each patient's own success story.
